Divided loyalties

Well, I haven’t been here much lately, have I? We are entering Week 6 of Social Media in English Language Teaching. It has been interesting for me to participate as a co-moderator, to see it from the inside. Right now we are playing a HipBone game. I have been playing HipBone games with my students for years, and this is the first time I have seen one played online. The board we are playing on at the moment looks like this:

It is really interesting to see how this plays out online. It is a lot like the way it plays out in person except there is a lot more time between moves. And, since I volunteered to update the board after each move, I have learned more about actually doing something in Drupal.

And then, of course, there is the fact that I really like wordpress better than Blogger. Even though I am not posting there much more than I am here, I find that it just works better for me. I year or so ago, I copied everything here over into Moving Along, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to close this blog. Somebody asked me not too ling ago why I was reluctant to give up this blog, and I didn’t have a real good answer. I guess it is force of habit more than anything else.

Once the SMiELT session is over, I hope to be back here full-time again. Let’s see how good I am at actually doing that!

    Has SMiELT prevented you from posting? You were by far the most active blogger of the whole group!
    Thank you for stepping in for Charles in the Hipbone Game. I just love the conversation that develops from it. How have you used it with your classes?
